The Bella Balay Story

Bella Balay was founded to connect the beauty and values of Peruvian artisans with the environmentally conscious citizen of the world.

For millennia, Peruvian people have worked in harmony with their environment and the materials it provides. The tradition of weaving containers using junco reed has been passed down through the generations.

Our mission at Bella Balay is to share our Peruvian ancestors’ artistry with the world in an environmentally sustainable way.

Ours is an age that increasingly recognizes – and appreciates – the inherent value of time-tested, handmade and sustainable products.

Bella means beautiful in Spanish. Balay is the Quechua word for basket. 
Put together Bella Balay means “Beautiful Basket”
